Academic Calendar

Kelley Direct's efficient four-term calendar caters to students who are also working professionals. You can complete the MBA program in two years or an MS program in just over one year. Kelley Direct's flexibility also allows you to take longer to complete your degree if needed. The fall, winter, spring, and summer terms are 12 weeks long. The winter term includes a one-week break for the holidays. For more information, please consult the Kelley Direct Handbook.

Please note: COVID-19 program updates

Due to current travel and safety concerns, in-person Kelley Direct Online MBA experiences are postponed. This includes in-person Kelley On Campus experiences and Global and Domestic Immersion programs, for which virtual options are now available. Kelley Direct Online MBA and MS courses are offered 100% online. In-person experiences will be resumed when it is safe to do so.
